Mini Book Review: The Death of Sleep

I picked up The Death of Sleep by Anne McCaffrey last week at the used bookstore. It looks like your typical space sci-fi, and that’s pretty much what it is.

If that’s all it was, I wouldn’t be writing this review. {Spoiler alert} The ending is haunting. There is no nice, tidy ending that lets the reader move on with her life. The protagonist ends the book suspended, literally, between life and death. Rescue may or may not be on the way.
